Today saw GV Multimedia’s Coventry team offer their congratulations to Elaine Sanderson on her retirement. Elaine has served the Midlands team as Office Manager for the past 9 years, offering support to all Project Managers as well as giving excellent after-sales service to GV’s valued customers.

Elaine has always enjoyed travelling to Spain and the US on holiday and is taking the chance to broaden her horizons for Christmas with a well-earned trip to Thailand this coming Monday.

The entire GV would like to take the opportunity to thank Elaine for her years of service and wish her all the very best for the future.

Congratulations, Elaine!

GV Multimedia is one of the only AV dealers in the UK to offer an in-house rack building service.
Our team has many years of experience in rack building - our Hounslow rack builders have integrated over 250 racks this year so far and they're still going. While the majority are new builds, we are also called upon to restore and recable legacy racks. Neat rack wiring is crucial to any AV system for a whole host of reasons. One of the main ones is that it provides ease of access to equipment and connectors should anything go wrong or any other need arise.The thing is, AV equipment doesn’t last forever, and that also applies to cables which can deteriorate over time. It should come as no surprise that it's far easier to swap out a lead with a replacement if there’s access to it and you can see where it’s going. By the same token, it’s a lot safer to swap out any piece of equipment if you’re safe in the knowledge that you’re not yanking out any other cables with it.

Friday saw GV Multimedia’s Exeter branch give a fond farewell to Installation Administrator Tony Warren.

After eight years with the company, Tony is set to move to the North Devon coast with his wife Christine to enjoy a well-earned retirement where he will indulge in his hobbies of photography and gardening.

During his time at GV, Tony ran the busy installation department and controlled stock movements as well as carrying out logistics, scheduling and looking after the team’s engineers.

The GV team would like to take the opportunity to thank Tony for his years of dedicated service and wish him and Christine all the very best for their retirement and their new home.

The GV Multimedia team would like to take the opportunity to extend congratulations to Kim Liddle who celebrates 25 years of loyal service with the company. Kim was presented with her service award by Company Chairman Brian Abrahams and Managing Director Lilian Cutting in the elegant Wynn Hotel in fabulous Las Vegas.

Kim has over 25 years of experience in the AV industry. She started off her career at Tyne Video where she worked for ten years before moving to Greenham Video in 1991. She started as Internal Sales then progressed to being an External Sales Rep where she covered the North East and Scotland while based in Gateshead, Tyne & Wear. Kim was later promoted to look after Gateshead, Manchester and Middlesbrough. Her Greenham branch later moved to Stockton-on-Tees and, in 1999, she relocated to Aldridge branch in the West Midlands.

Two years later, the management buyout of Greenham Video saw the birth of GV Multimedia Ltd. For Kim, this brought a change of job title to Operations Director and a move of branch to Tamworth. Tamworth branch moved to Lutterworth for a number of years before relocating once again, in 2015, to their larger, current premises in Coventry - featuring a new Sales area, workshop and warehouse.

Kim’s leadership has been instrumental to her branch’s growth over the years. On top of her being responsible for winning many of her area’s biggest contracts, Kim is also responsible for managing the company's important ISO accreditations.

Congratulations, Kim!
